As part of the newly launched M32 Mediterranean Sailing Series 2016, residents and visitors to Monaco can watch Swedish-built 9.68m one-design carbon catamarans race Saturday and Sunday from 11am.

Initiated in 2013, the M32 Series regatta format takes a professional sailing series to the regional level, “to focus on the spectators in the race village”, with back to back short races of 8-12 minutes over 3-4 hours of very intensive racing.

With a crew of four or five, eight teams – including from Italy, France, Spain, Scandinavia and the US – will participate in this weekend’s five-stage “high speed America’s Cup-style fleet” race, hosted by the Monaco Yacht Club. MYC member Guido Miani will be competing.

The series will continue in Riva Del Garda and Crotone in Italy, with the finals in Spain in October.
